We saw this fish at the sandy bottom edge of a reef at ~65ft near Great St. James, USVI. It is close to a seminole goby or a hovering goby, but I do not think it is either!! Any thoughts?
Hovering dartfish, I think (based on Humann and DeLoach, 3rd ed. pg. 284-285). It's in the "goby" section, so it might could be called a hovering goby.
Ahhh..I see it now! I think you are quite right. My edition of Humann and Deloach (2nd) looked close, but I was throuwn off by the yellow blotch on the caudel fin of the fish in my pictures. However, after googling "hovering dartfish" images I see that there are quite alot of color variations.
